    You obviously donít know what youíre talking about. N Korea and the US signed a non Proliferation agreement in 1994. It failed and bush and Obama have been trying to deal with the N Koreans since. Hereís a link https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.history.com/.amp/news/north-korea-nuclear-deal-bill-clinton-agreed-framework. Thatís 25 years ago when the US was negotiating with N Korea. Trump didnít start negotiations with the N Koreans heís just continuing whatís been going on for 25 years You sure donít know whatís going on. Iran and the world have been negotiating over the development of their nuclear program for the past 20 years! What are you taking about the 1953 coup? You havenít heard about Iran in the past 20 years? And Obama signed an Iranian nuclear arms deal in 2015. Another link. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-33521655 so the Iranians were developing nukes and Obama signed a deal to stop it. Now Trump is trying to negotiate with N Korea on their nuclear program. So both counties have nuclear programs and the US tries to limit nuclear proliferation. See the connection? There isnít any reason for DPRK to eliminate their nuclear program because itís the best protection against a US invasion. And yes, weíre protecting Korea and Japan because N Korea has a nuclear arsenal and missiles pointed at them. A war in the Pacific means the loss of millions of lives. Hereís a link to a story from ex military and ex cia analysts saying it would be catastrophic https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.vox.com/platform/amp/world/2018/2/7/16974772/north-korea-war-trump-kim-nuclear-weapon the idea that Trump is solving this crisis at all is ridiculous. Itís been on going for 25 years and weíre no closer to ending DPRKís nuclear program today then we were 10 years ago.

    Completely untrue. We have had decades without any speaking to North Korea. That is why Trump entering North Korea was such a big deal to begin with. So you want to call him a dictator and at the same time get him to stop his nuclear ambitions? Ok that will work. Trump treating him with respect will go a lot further than sabre rattling. It is why Trump is making more progress than anyone before him. So you assume Koreans can't take care of themselves? Or the Japanese can't? We just police the planet? Huh? It's 2019. The Soviet Union is gone. We are still employing policies from the Cold War. It's over. Time to change tactics and move on. Our 25k troops aren't responsible for stopping war. Furthermore, South Korea is rich and can handle itself. Write a fantasy novel. You're just guessing. WTF are you even talking about? The US strategy for Iran was to topple the government and install a puppet. This was done to a democratic nation we were friendly with, not an aggressive dictatorship. You have never hear of the 1953 CIA coup? The strategies for Iran and North Korea are completely different with completely different outcomes. Honestly I don't think you have any idea about what you're talking about. Trump has us closer to peace with North Korea than at any point since the cease fire. It is great to see him and Kim make progress and meet. I hope it continues and results in freedom for the people of North Korea.

    negotiations between NK and the US Have been ongoing since the end of the Korean War and US diplomats have always negotiated with foreign powers but not the president. Kim wanted to be seen as a world leader and not a corrupt dictator and his public summits with the president was the one thing he held out for. What about that was not clear? His reasons for wanting to be seen on the world stage is not as important as us using it as a negotiating chip. Thatís why Trump shouldnít have met Kim. It absolutely is in our interests to make sure thereís peace between the Koreas and Japan and China in the Pacific. Thatís why we have bases there. You absolutely donít want war to break out there. After WWII, the Korean War, Vietnam and what happened in Cambodia during the Vietnam war our troops stationed there have helped keep the peace. Thatís why there are 25k soldiers there along with about 50k in Japan. If US soldiers leave Korea, that weakens S. Korea and Japan since they lose the protection of those 25k troops. It would also probably lead to Japan trying to develop their own nuclear weapons to prevent N. Korean provocation. Getting rid of Nukes in N Korea reduces the threat of nuclear weapons being used. Which is why US strategy has always been to keep them isolated (like Iran) and keep consistent pressure on the regime. There hasnít been any agreement about North Korea freezing plutonium and uranium programs, nothing about destroying intercontinental ballistic missiles, nothing about allowing inspectors to return to nuclear sites etc. He hasnít gotten anything in return for a bargaining chip he gave up. Nothing has changed since NK went nuclear other than they got to meet with the US president.

    Now this is cooking! How about a Porsche 991.1 Turbo making 948 horsepower to all four wheels and tuned on the factory ecu? Also, achieving that number on the stock engine internals and the factory transmission? That is what SRM (Silly Rabbit Motorsport) hit with their SRM1000 package and their Porsche 991.1 Turbo. There are not many details on this package and what you will see is a PorscheBoost exclusive. Let's start with the graph: 948 to the wheels on a Mustang is not a joke. Keep in mind this is done on the World Motorsports Mustang which reads closer to a Dynojet. A ton of power on the factory the engine internals and the factory transmission regardless. Fuel is supplied with supplemental port injection. ID1700 injectors and the SRM brushless fuel pump upgrade. This car will be dyno'd again shortly but the current result is fantastic. More SRM1000 details to come after the next dyno session.

    RMB Motor Works focuses on the Ecoboost platforms and there is something to be said for having expertise in a certain area and not spreading yourself too thin. When it comes to Ecoboost builds, they seem to have everything available from mild to wild. A 4.2 liter stroker build certainly is on the wild side. Pictured is a Gen 1 Ecoboost 3.5 V6 being taken to 4.2 liters. What is the bore and stroke? They did not specify. The factory setup is 92.5mm bore x 88.7mm stroker making for an oversquare motor. Even if you take the stroke up to 92mm that results in 3709cc so they likely are increasing the bore a bit too here. Hopefully they share the recipe and cost soon. Either way, some monster 4.2 liter Ecoboost V6 builds are on the way.

    Spy videos usually are not too exciting but this one is being promoted simply because of the audio. Just listen to the new GT3, wow! If you are going to make an argument against axing the naturally aspirated engine the GT3 all you have to do is play this video on loud. A 500+ horsepower naturally aspirated flat-6 is rumored. As is a redline of 9500 rpm which truly would make it sing. Sure, there is not much power left to squeeze out but you have to love how Posche keeps finding horses and improving the car. Not to mention what a unique car the GT3 is in the current automotive climate.

    Originally Full Race priced this turbo upgrade for the BMW S55 higher but competition pushed the price down to $3999. At that price point with no core exchange this bolt in hybrid upgrade becomes more attractive to BMW F80 M3 and BMW F82 M4 owners. Features: Performance-optimized Billet compressor wheel with latest generation blade aero A direct bolt-on replacement; all connections to the vehicle utilize OE inlet and outlet to retain factory intake plumbing and exhaust routing. Manufactured with 100% brand-new OEM components Ė Not remanufactured and no core charge Ready to install out of the box, with pre-set electronic wastegate Step-Gap oil seal on Turbine side Multipad Thrust Bearing Assembly Watercooled Center Section That all sounds nice, what kind of power are we talking? 672 rwhp: Nice numbers on E85 but the supporting modifications are not stated. Definitely an option to consider.

    Anyone on this board who believes they have insight into USA/DPRK are facing cognitive dissonance. At this point in the conversation what source of data can be trusted?

    And? LOL ok so that's it, no more meetings or discussions? It's a wrap? What are you talking about? South Korea wants our troops to leave and they should take over their own security interests. It isn't in our interest to remain in Korea forever. Just like it isn't in our interest to police the Middle East. You just said fought three wars to keep peace... that doesn't make any sense. Trump is showing he isn't their enemy and willing to negotiate. He isn't just ignoring them or hoping this goes away on its own. He is making more progress than any US president. Treat them with some respect and attempt to improve the lives of everyone on the peninsula. What's your strategy? Ignore him so he screams louder and does more tests?

    Giving up his nukes wasn't a part of this meeting. He is just supposed to give them up instantly? It's a peace process. It won't be accomplished overnight. This was a great step forward. Whether you like it or not he is the leader of North Korea. What would you do? Ignore him until his nuclear arsenal is ready to go? Last I checked I remember Churchill and Roosevelt meeting with Stalin. Did they give the USSR legitimacy? Why was that ok?

    Here it is, the even sharper Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO. What is the difference between the PRO and the standard R? The PRO gets revised aerodynamics, suspension, and more lightweight carbon fiber pieces. Engine output remains the same. What do these differences add up to? Six seconds on the Nurburgring. The PRO laps the Nurburgring in 7:04.6. This is an AMG GT for the most serious of track junkies. Only 750 will be made and if you were meant to have one your Mercedes-AMG rep likely already contacted you about it. The number of units coming to the USA is not specified. Mercedes-Benz USA announced pricing today for the new Mercedes- AMG GT R PRO, an exclusive model from the high-performance AMG GT family. Starting from $199,650*, the GT R PRO is limited to 750 units globally and features further-honed driving dynamics, specifically tuned for the racetrack. Drawing on experience gained from the triumphant motorsport successes of the AMG GT3 and GT4 racing cars, the Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO features a new adjustable coil-over suspension, lightweight construction with carbon fiber components, unique race-inspired design and functional aerodynamic enhancements. These improvements enabled AMG GT3 racing driver Maro Engel to complete a circuit of the NŁrburgring North Loop in exactly 7.04.632 minutes while driving the new AMG GT R PRO. This bettered the previous time set by the AMG GT R by approximately six seconds, and demonstrates the great potential of AMG's current flagship GT. Unique performance and design highlights of the new AMG GT R PRO include: AMG RIDE CONTROL coil-over suspension with manual damping adjustment, allowing for precise tuning of spring rate, rebound and compression. This fine-tuning is possible via permanently installed adjustment wheels on the damper, providing optimal adjustment of the suspension setup to suit specific tracks or personal preference. Enlarged carbon fiber front splitter with aluminum supports, aerodynamic carbon fiber 'flics' on the front bumper, functional aerodynamic 'gills' in the front fenders, and an adjustable front axle carbon fiber sway bar. All of these components work together to improve front-axle downforce. Newly redesigned carbon fiber roof with lowered center section, matte carbon fiber crossbar and interior trim, carbon fiber side skirt inserts, carbon fiber rear diffuser, carbon ceramic brakes, carbon fiber side mirror housings and a fixed rear spoiler in carbon fiber. Exclusive and color-coordinated race-inspired exterior accent stripes. Gloss Light Green stripes when combined with Selenite Grey Magno exterior, or stripes in Matte Dark Grey with all other exterior colors. The unique accent stripes can also be omitted, if desired. In addition to the GT R PRO's exclusive new performance features and unique design, it also shares new features recently introduced across the refreshed 2020 AMG GT lineup. 2020 AMG GT Updates The new Mercedes-AMG GT models include a new dynamic side skirt, a new diffuser insert in the rear bumper, and a revised double-round tailpipe design. The AMG GT C models also receive a new rear diffuser, as well as a new double-trapezoid tailpipe design lending an even sportier look. The new light signature of the LED High Performance headlights emulates that of the new AMG GT 4-door Coupe and reinforces the overall AMG GT family connection. In addition to the already standard rear-view camera, a standard front camera has been added to aid in parking and low speed maneuvers. Updates to the new GT interior are even more impressive. The standard new 12.3" digital instrument cluster and larger 10.25" multimedia display enhance both the look and functionality of the interior. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also included as standard. The center console design now features innovative touch display buttons, presented for the first time in the AMG GT 4- Door Coupe. A new touchpad option also offers a new way to interact with the multimedia interface. The new AMG Performance steering wheels place an emphasis on driving dyanmics, and also integrate touch control buttons to control and navigate the instrument cluster and multimedia center displays. All models also receive the AMG steering wheel controls standard, consisting of a round control knob with an integrated display below the right-hand steering wheel spoke, and two display buttons below the left-hand steering wheel spoke. AMG Dynamic Select can be controlled via the right-hand control knob, and the selected setting will be shown in the integrated color LCD display. With exclusive design details, race-bred engineering, and track-tuned performance enhancements, the AMG GT R PRO reinforces AMG's brand promise of "Driving Performance." The AMG GT R PRO will be available in U.S. dealers by late 2019. Key data at a glance: 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO MSRP $199,650* Engine Handcrafted AMG 4.0L V8 biturbo Displacement (cc) 3,982 Drive Config.

    The N Koreans have been trying to improve their international image for decades and meeting with the US brings him legitimacy with other world leaders. Both Kim jong-un’s father and grandfather wanted Summits with our country. Now Jong-Un has no reason to negotiate anything else because they’ve gotten what they want without giving up anything. As far as our policy goes, we want them to eliminate nukes but the N. Koreans want US troops to leave the Korean Peninsula. In other words, they want complete capitulation of US interests in the Pacific. No way that should ever be on the table after we fought 3 wars there over the last 75 years to keep the peace. We sure as hell shouldn’t give that up. So what is Trump negotiating? Like I said they aren’t giving up the nukes and we already have sanctioned their regime for the past 25 years. What’s the strategy? Another year of sanctions isn’t going to break them.
